After the silent and peaceful protest in Istanbul Gezi Park in 2013, he prepared a photography exhibition “Invacuo” emphasizing on the abundance use of pepper spray gas on innocent protestors. The book with the same name was published in the same year.

He is a member of AIAP (Association International des Arts Plastique) and
accredited photographer from PPOC (Professional Photographers of Canada).

He lives and works in Toronto.
